Measure twice

cut once

Be here now or get there there later.

I cut and I cut and it is still too short....


Strive always to provoke and not to offend, unless, of course, offensiveness is the proper tool for the job.

The cheap becomes expensive.

Assholes and elbows 

Don't start no shit and there won't be none

When all else fails


Read the instructions...

Shut er down she's pumpin mud 

"Are you gonna eat that?"

"Mind if I have a bite"

Take the Canoli.

The situation is boss.

"I'm from the days of wooden ships and iron men"

Most of my favorites are pulled from movies. My go to for the past couple years when I feel like giving up from dealing with my Mom's passing and the legal hoops of closing her estate (still dealing with for the past year), and becoming the primary care giver for my 56 yo brother who is autistic comes from Willy Wonka. When they are trapped in the shrinking hallway:

Sam Beauregarde: Come on, Violet. We're getting out of here.
Willy Wonka: Oh, you can't get out backwards. You've got to go forwards to go back, better press on...

And Gandalf:  All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

Never apologize, never explain.

if you can't explain it

you don't understand it

I don't understand, Bss. Can you explain?

((( RONGEO ))) That's so much to be dealing with. SO much. Wishing you the knowledge of which way is out...

Fuck art. Let's dance.

^ Yes, dance.

In my case, Art Saves Lives. And keep dancing.

"A little pain never hurt anyone." - G. Carlin

> In my case, Art Saves Lives.

judit, Fuck Art, Let's Dance was a punk thing from the late 70s/early 80s that targeted the conventional (and increasingly commercialized) Art (with a capital A) world, and not the kind that saves lives, which of course, I'm a big fan of too.

Living after midnight
Rocking to the dawn
Loving 'til the morning
Then I'm gone


Mike, Fuck Art, Let's Dance was not just punk back then, it was ubiquitous and fun to play with.

I first saw a sign saying 'Art Saves Lives'  in a tiny, below ground rubber stamp shop (stamps for art and office use) in Amsterdam in the '70s. The phrase became my words to live by.

> it was ubiquitous

Gotcha. I ran into it in Greenwich Village in the late 70s and didn't know how widespread it was. And of course I'm not anti-art, but I do like provocative things.

^ As do I.

Provocateurs ... I think that's part of what we're on earth for; it's our life and job.

When I was a medical receptionist I felt it was my responsibility to not only do the usual things in my job description but also to provoke and spark people to thought. It was my peace work. Keep it going!

Cut the thinker of thoughts and recollections

Make vividly clear that no objective entities can be established

Better to beg for forgiveness, than ask for permission 

I want eternity, and I want it to last!

Never put your penis in a place you would not put your fingers.

Good sausage isn't cheap

Cheap sausage isn't good

if you like sausage

don't go where they make it

This thread has officially turned into a sausage fest.

Don't bogart that joint, my friend, pass it over to me

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro!


Never miss a Sunday show,,

the Lord's got the day off and is probably floatin around

John's got a sausage 
Yeah man 
John's got a sausage 
Yeah man 
John's got a sausage 
That'll make you fart 
John's got a sausage 
That'll break your heart 
Make you fart 
And break your heart 
Don't bend over 
If you are smart

Fuck cancer.

* I love you. *


((( Fuck cancer )))

Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow.

2 Things -

1.  Never waste a boner

2.  Never trust a fart

Love to all, no exceptions.

all work and no beer make homer go something something

Fill it, light it, shut up and close the door

Roll another one, just like the other one.

Thank you for your kind words and thoughts above Judit and Joe!

Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet sweaty things... George Carlin

Don't piss in the wind.

Don't tug on Superman's cape.

You don't pull the mask off the old lone ranger

And you don't mess around with Jim.

Cap'n - you got to let it out!!!!!

The more you know, the less you don't know

I don't even know what I don't even know.

Sometimes I don't even know what I know.

I have no way of knowing this for sure but I think when I cease to exist so will everyone and everything else. This is my universe and you are all just a part of it. 

 Because it's there.

>  I think when I cease to exist so will everyone and everything else

Solipsism: It's not for everyone.

Sister Monica once told me in seventh grade "God helps those, who help themselves" which I took as "God ain't got time for your shit"
